Real Sociedad and Barcelona have finalised the €12 million transfer that will bring Chilean international goalkeeper, Claudio Bravo to the Camp Nou which, in the end, will not include Jonathan Dos Santos.
Dos Santos was expected to be included in the deal, which would have lowered the price of the 32-year-old keeper, but the Mexican midfielder rejected the move, leaving the final sale at €12 million plus an additional €1 million in variables.
Barcelona and Bravo had reached an agreement on personal terms weeks ago and following his World Cup campaign and subsequent holidays, Bravo will go straight to Barcelona save for saying his final goodbyes to his former teammates and club.
Real Sociedad will not look for Bravo’s replacement, and quickly, as they need to begin preparations for their Europa League campaign.
